Top players in SRH and RCB
D Warner: He was the top-scorer in IPL 2019 and is full-time captain this year.
B Kumar: He has had his fitness issues but this year like M Shami he has a point to prove.
R Khan: His economical rate of 6.55 is phenomenal and is arguably the best spinner in the world in T20.
M Pandey: He was pretty solid in 2019 edition of IPL scoring at an average of 43 & would play a crucial role in the Middle-order for SRH.
V Kohli: He is arguably the best batsman in the world of cricket right now and he being the captain of RCB a lot depends on his performance.
AB de Villiers: Mr. 360 doesn't need any introduction when on song can change the game on its head.
D Steyn: He has an economy rate of 6.76 which is best amongst the fast bowlers who have played at least 20 matches, he should play a major role for this team.

RCB, as always, is super strong on paper. Whether they would perform better on the field this time around is to be seen. My pick for today's match is RCB, which one is yours?
